Just Another Manic Monday

I survived Monday! Impressive, I know. I am counting down the days to my 4 days off next week. I can not wait for that and the fact that Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. Turkey, stuffing, squash, canned cranberry sauce, yum! As usual, I will be hosting.
Mom will be coming from the nursing home to have dinner with us, which hopefully will not be the last Thanksgiving for that. She is really going downhill. Not only is she forgetting, she is totally zoning out. Normally, you can see her think when you ask her a question. I can see her mind at work by looking at her. Now, I see nothing just stares. She has had this disease for10 years at least but now, it really is taking over. Who knows what will happen by next Thanksgiving.
My mood has been up and down. This whole deal with Mom makes my mind go back over things which makes me sad and it just continues. The shadow has been sort of prevalent lately, lurking in the corners, pouncing when necessary.
I had a focus group tonight but I was not needed as they overbooked and I was paid just for showing up. I love it! It was a quick and easy way to earn $100.
I had a weird food day. I could not finish my breakfast or snack.
My breakfast was pumpkin oatmeal. Old fashioned oats, pumpkin, a little bit of sugar free syrup and pumpkin pie spice. It was filling and I could not finish it.
My lunch was a buffalo turkey and cheese sandwich on Arnold's German Wheat bread with mustard. I also had a very good, crisp, juicy and sweet Braeburn apple.
Hannaford Light Lemon yogurt. I could not finish. Yogurt and me are over each other for the time being.
This mess is ground beef, peppers, onions, black beans, corn cooked in a bit of olive oil with cheese and salsa all with some Mrs. Dash spicy seasoning. I love it. A typical dinner a la Jennifer.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. Wish there was something I could do or say.

    Your food pictures are making me hungry...the pumpkin oatmeal sounds delish.

    Love the turkey pic...


I love your comments!
